By: Annan, Kofi A.
Material type: materialTypeLabelBookPublisher: New York United Nations Children's Fund 2001Description: 102 p.ISBN: 9280637207.Subject(s): Child welfare | Children - Mortality | Children - EducationDDC classification: 362.7 Summary: UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan's We the Children is a landmark review of the progress made in meeting the commitments of the 1990 World Summit for Children. An essential reference and guide for anyone interested in development, the report assesses the decade's achievements and its setbacks, highlights best practices and lessons learned, describes the obstacles to progress, and makes recommendations for further action. In the preface, Secretary-General Annan notes that this report "demonstrates, with facts and figures, how the 1990 World Summit for Children, at that time the largest gathering of world leaders in history, was indeed very systematically followed up and rigorously monitored and has resulted in many impressive achievements. Not least, it catalysed political commitment behind the Convention on the Rights of the Child, which is now the world's most widely embraced human rights instrument. The fact that not all the goals and targets of the World Summit were fully achieved should now serve as a spur for greater political support, increased resources and more dynamic social mobilization." The accompanying Statistical Review presents the most recent data on children's rights and well-being, based on an exhaustive 150-country data-collection effort. This is an adapted and abridged edition of the Secretary-General's report 'We the Children: End-decade review of the follow-up to the World Summit for Children' (A/S-27/3), which was released in May 2001. Some of the data has been updated. https://www.unicef.org/publications/index_4443.html
